One of the changes for season three of Star Trek: Picard will be with the music with a new composer. Showrunner Terry Matalas brought in his former 12 Monkeys collaborator Stephen Barton to help create a score to match his vision for the season, and they have a holiday treat, sharing a bit of the new original music from the score.
One of the reasons Barton was brought in for season 3 was to bring some of the classic Star Trek movie themes into the show to match the cinematic style Matalas wants to evoke. This includes him recreating some of the classic musical moments from composers like Jerry Goldsmith and James Horner.
Naturally, the primary hero ship, the USS Titan-A, has a theme. Matalas has shared a “happy holidays!” gift of a video of the Titan theme being recorded, which definitely fits in with classic Star Trek movie music. See the video below

Make your own Titan music
Barton has shared the sheet music for the theme, which he says was “basically co-written” with Matalas. The showrunner has added that he wants to hear some fan covers of the music.
